Does solid hardwood increase the value of your house more than engineered hardwood?

Check with you realtor or appraiser. I’ve heard that they no longer count flooring toward the actual value of your house. Seems unfair to me, but it’s what my appraiser told me.

If that’s the case you should choose what works best in your area and for your budget.

RE: increase home value
It depends. There are some high end engineered floors that look great and will increase the valu as much as the solid, but generally the solid is just the longer lasting floor since you can refinish it.

Follow these guidelines to get the most out of your selection.

• To narrow your alternative, first of all make sure about your budget. Knowing how much you can afford will save your time and effort.
• Choose best one according to the foot traffic.
• For better look, you need to choose your floor's type and color that will fit in.
• Each type of Wooden flooring has its cons and benefits so whole detail about your wooden Floors are necessary.
• Choose Wooden Flooring on behalf of the rating. All wood comes in different ratings or grades: Higher grades indicate more durable wood that is less likely to have visible defects.
• You can use less robust wooden floors for the bedroom as well because this area also observes less traffic.
• You can also use a less-durable wood for living rooms and dining rooms because these areas generally have less traffic.
• There is a special requirement of wood floors for a kitchen or family room because they are high-traffic areas.
